Ignorance is Blister (Documentary)

On the 10th April 2017, Alec Mills and Lucie Holtermann embarked on the first stage of the Marathon Des Sables: six fierce ultra-marathons in five days in the scorching heat of the Sahara Desert. Neither of them had ever run a race before, let alone a marathon, let alone an ultra-marathon. 

This is the story of their three months training, the worries of their families, friends and doctors and the story of a naive uphill struggle to prepare for the world's toughest race.
